Couldn't sleep last Tuesday morning and took pictures of my wildflowers. Just a few short hours later, I learned of the death of my mom's husband of nine years.
John was a man who brought much happiness to my mom these past few years. As he was nearing the prospect of losing his memory more and more due to the meanness of the Alzheimer's disease, a heart attack, then another and then another finally took him from this life to the sweetness of living without his aged body. He was nearing 88 and walked in much pain as he tried to maintain the yard and his garden. Mom will surely miss him.
